Flying out tonight for my vacation to the Phillipines and Vietnam!!!

I will not be on social media much because I want to take in all of my experiences to its fullest. I will update my IG & Twitter from time to time though :)

I am excited to sight see, take in the culture and of course EAT!!! Lol. We will be experiencing the luxuries that our countries have to offer but it is also very important for us to go to all types of provinces and help those in need as much as we can. I hope to spread my love and passion of healthy and fitness during my travels as well.<3

This trip is going to be special for me because this is my first trip without my family so I feel like I am truly growing up. This is also my first trip with a significant other and I am proud that we worked hard and made this trip possible on our own :)

Hope you all stay healthy and happy! Talk soon, see ya later Amurica!!

Anonymous said: How often do you allow yourself to have a cheat day? I'v always had a horrible sweet tooth and craving for ayce KBBQ :( I've started my workout + tupperware regimen lately and I haven't had any major struggles with my cravings yet, but I'm wondering how often I can spoil myself a little with a KBBQ meal here and there without letting my hard work go to waste. Do you think cheating once or twice a month is okay or should I completely cross AYCE kbbq off my diet?

Crossing AYCE KBBQ off your list? Whaaaaaaaat! Lol. I think a lot of people have the misconception that you cannot eat the things you enjoy when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. You still can, just make sure everything is in moderation. I don’t diet, I just eating according to my goals. Once you start understanding your body more with the food that you are consuming then you will know what works and what doesn’t. I started meal prepping over a year and a half ago and the first 6 months I yo-yo’ed a lot because I was so strict on myself. So when I cheated, oh boy did I cheat. I think I ate everything under the sun then went back to tupperware life. Lol.ย 

If you want to eat something, just do it. I hated how in the past I would feel guilty for eating foods that I enjoyed. It sucked! Just keep in mind that one healthy meal will not make you fit and one unhealthy meal will not make you fat. :)ย 

I don’t give myself cheat meals these days, I just eat selectively. Starting off with a healthier eating regime, what I have noticed that worked is having a cheat meal once a week/two weeks. And when I say cheat meal it means ONE meal, not one cheat day. Lol.

Thanks for making me crave kbbq. Brisket and rice paper are calling my name! Hahah. Take me with you please! Jokes aside, remember that all of this is a learning experience and that you will figure out what’s best for you and your body. Eat. Work out. Be happy :)

aynguyen said: I followed you a year ago on IG n overtime I realized how inspiring you are! Honestly at 25 I hope to be as happy, successful, and determined as you. I'm 20 n whenever I find myself stressed or falling off track, I stumble upon your posts n it helps whether it be with my health or education. Your encouragement through ig/tumblr is so motivating and I love your constant reminders that skinny isn't the only form of beauty, especially in the Vietnamese culture. You're awesome to say the least - xo

Thank you so much for this message! I truly appreciate it!<3 20, you just took me back 5 years. Oman, I am 5 years away from 30! Haha. Time really does fly and my wish for you is to enjoy every bit of your life because soon enough you will be where I am at right now. Your early 20’s will be a great learning experience, you will discover who you are and what you want to do with your life. Always be sure to work hard and stay positive, there will hardships along the way but just remember that success never comes without struggle. Overcoming trials and adversities will make you a stronger person who appreciates her success. Love yourself and love those who love you! :)

Anonymous said: Hi Anne, I'm always on the go! I'm a full time student and have a full time job. It seems like you know what It's like to be busy as well. so I was wondering if you had any fast easy recipes to make healthy quick meals. Tank youuu <3 Hope you and Robby have a blessed vacation :)

Hiiii! Oh yes hun, I can totally relate! Juggling multiple things on your plate makes it hard at time to be consistent with your eating, that’s why preparing meals in advance helps :) My quick go to meals are:

-Brown rice, grilled chicken/pork tenderloins, asparagus/brocolli.
-Tuna salad
-Ground turkey with bell peppers, onions. You can either cut up lettuce and make it into a salad or have it with brown rice/carb of your choice.ย 
-Turkey and veggie wheat sandwich
-Special K cereal with milk
-PB and banana sandwich
-Salmon and veggies
-Eggs with ham/turkey/assorted veggies. (low carb meal)

These are the first things that popped into my head. Takes me about 10-15 mins for each of them. The right seasoning helps, I use Mrs. Dash and recently got FlavorGod which is delish! Being a student and working full time is hard, try and keep it simple yet sufficient and tasty as possible :) Thank you for the kind wish on our vacation!<3

Take care,
Anne

Anonymous said: do you think you could date somebody that didn't lift or workout?

Hi there. I could date someone who didn’t lift but if the person did not work out at all, I honestly could not date him. Being active and healthy is very important to me and it is also important that my significant other shares this lifestyle with me. I couldn’t imagine dating someone who wouldn’t want to go for a walk with me or to play basketball with me. I mean lifting and the gym is not for everyone but my significant other has to be at least active. Luckily Robby shares my lifestyle :)

Take care,
Anne

Anonymous said: Hi Anne, where do you put your iphone/mp3 during your workouts? Do you recommend using one of those armbands?

Hi! I used to have an awesome phone clip that Robby purchased for me online but I misplaced it :( So for a while I was putting it inside of my sports bra and recently my friend told me I shouldn’t do that because it might cause breast cancer. (EEEEK!) I try to wear workout pants/shorts that have pockets but it is rather difficult to do that when doing HIIT training. Haha. The struggle! Armbands are good but I have yet to find out that does not become loose and slide off of my arm. If you happen to find a good one, please lmk! :)

Take care!
Anne

My goal in doing the pageant was to break stereotypes about how a Vietnamese woman should be and look like. I wanted girls to know that they did not have to fit anyone&#8217;s stereotype to feel beautiful because they are beautiful in their own way in whichever way they choose to live their lives. Messages like these make my heart happy. :) I pray that in the future my community will be accepting of all forms of beauty, and I know it&#8217;s up to us to make it happen.
